350.org Founder Bill McKibben gave this special talk in Seattle April 28th 2013, bringing us up to date addressing the issue of Climate Change and the struggle to stop the carbon companies from wrecking the planet. He said with this week's topping of 400 ppm, CO2 levels in the atmosphere are higher than at any time since humans have walked the face of the earth and the consequences are already catastrophic. The best selling author of the first book on climate change The End of Nature (1989) and the more recent Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet, is calling for militant mass action. It's basically us or them. He also said that we have to go on the offense. The movement to divest from oil companies that is sweeping our nation’s colleges, universities and local governments is picking up steam as is the struggle to stop the Coal Trains here in the Pacific NW. It's conceivable that we could actually win this but a lot of people might have to spend a night or two in jail. Few people know that one of the reasons why they want to build the XL Pipeline through the United States is because people in BC stopped them. We need to stop them everywhere. Join us to hear the plan. Please share widely.
